3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy straw-gold with a sizable, frothy, off-white head. Leaves about as much lacing as I’ve ever seen in a beer of this style. The yeasty-bready-fruity-grassy smell is paired with a yeasty-wheaty-fruity taste that is more sour than sweet. Both the aroma and the flavor have somewhat lower levels of banana and clove than those found in many Belgian blondes. Hints of coriander and lemon. Light-medium body, if a bit fuller than average for style. The carbonation is a bit aggressive.
Overall: OK, but a step down in quality from their excellent Brune.

Aroma: Belgian candi sugar , floral hop notes with sweetnes around. Alcohol noted but not intrusive.
Look: fine haze on golden base with fairly large frothy top.3+
Taste: sweet but not overly. Good clean cut hops on top with heat behind. Belgian yeast notes finsihing with plesant blend of malts , hops and alcohol. Solid example.

At Bad Apple. OK but not great tripel. Not crisp and tart enough and the sweetness level didn’t quite work. The missus thought it was a bit one note. Serving: Tap
